Future direction of MYC activities is being set by the Reopening Committee. See its report here.
Updates will be posted on activity web pages, and on the MYC Calendar, as decisions are made. Last updated
The MYC Kayaking program organizes approximately six kayak paddles each summer in the bays, ponds, rivers, and streams of Cape Cod. Bill Kyle is the group leader, but others in the group take charge of leading some of the individual paddles, researching tides and routes and leading the group on the water.
Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs, ie life-vests) are required equipment. The trips are typically 3 to 5 miles and a couple of hours in duration, with a mid-paddle stop for a rest and snack. The schedule is publicized club-wide, but you need to be on Bill Kyle's email list to receive last-minute notices of changes or cancellations due to wind or weather. The group does easy to easy-intermediate paddles, and only when the weather and wind forecast is very good.
Some of the group's past kayak trips are posted on the Past Kayak Trips page, for the benefit of club members who want to do these trips on their own.
